Unlimited vacation, as long as your manager is informed and approves. Maternity and Paternity leave are very minimal.

Report answer

For SALARIED employees, there is no PTO accrual. If your boss approves it, you can take paid time off. This means they don't have to pay out any "balance" if you quit or are laid off, because you didn't accrue. Can work to your advantage, if you manage to get your requests approved; if not, it could be difficult.

If you are an HOURLY employee, wage and hour laws don't allow the same as above, so you'll accrue at a starting rate of 2 weeks per year.

Policy is: no PTO, only request basis - ask your manager for time off and if he/she approves you get paid time off for amount agreed to.
